Okay, 20/f/wa now that we got the basics over
not rly sure what to put here; Im not a computer wiz (my bf is) but im pretty savy w/ internet/graphic design.

ATM, my computer hates me, that said- it's not even rly my computer. I rent a room at a house, the computer was off line till my boyfriend hooked everything up (for free, even though it took 2+ hours of work) then our roomates discovered the WORLD WIDE WEB, and downloaded everything they could click on in a 4 days period.

Now the computer has 2098423098420948 viruses -no virus software (for some reason our landlord, who owns the computer, doesnt want me to go out and get virsus software, she thinks its a scam).
Anyways, maybe I can resolve some of the issues its having on this forum.

Tell your landlord that without computer protection, in the form of firewall/Anti-Virus/Anti-spyware, the computer will become useless after a few more days of Internet usage, and that it will cost far more than some FREE downloads, to fix it. I am sure he doesn't leave the keys in his car with the motor running, and running an unprotected computer is just as dangerous.
